So I love the narrator of this book and I liked the book overall, although the thing that bothered me was sometimes story seemed like it jumped. There wasn't enough detail in some parts and that left me wanting. I really like the epilogue as they gave me food for thought. overall I would recommend the book.
I really liked this book, it was able to capture the feelings and complexities of what it means to be fat in society and what it means to lose weight when being fat was a part of your identity both of which are complex issues that the author portrays well.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Not necessarily very subjective story about an individual's experience of gastric surgery and not particularly helpful for those going through or about to go through gastric surgery but interesting none the less.
Would you be willing to try another book from Jen Larsen? Why or why not?
Yes the story was good
Did Stranger Here inspire you to do anything?

I liked the book at the start, the examination of the author's psychology and motivations as shepves through her weight loss journey. But the second half of the book got aimless and branched off into too many themes and subplots, like the useless trip to Chicago.
